The end of 2021 is coming up fast. Maybe too fast. Either way, it’s about that time when people like Eric Alper and me start talking about the best music of the year. Today, we are chatting about some of the biggest breakout artists of 2021 — including not one, but two acts Eric actually plans to leave his basement to see in 2022 (assuming live concerts and/or society in general still exist). Sonic Reducers. One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know.
